Gastrawnomica’s Raw Thai Pasta in memory of Rynn Berry (who passed away a few hours ago)

Yesterday, I was shocked to hear that my good friend Rynn Berry had been unconscious since December 31 (or possibly the 29th). He is an expert on the history of vegetarianism and is the author of many beautifully written books. He was primarily a raw food vegan. He has been my guest a number of times. Unfortunately, he passed away at 12:30p today. May he rest in peace; he contributed so much and will be missed.

To honor him, I prepared a raw food dinner tonight. I found a good looking Thai "pasta" recipe online, and prepared it fairly closely to the recipe, but omitted cilantro. We dimmed the lights, lit a candle, and talked about Rynn while we ate. I sure miss him!

Very beautiful, Dilip. Thank you for all of your online tributes and efforts to this great man, Rynn Berry. He will be greatly missed. I wonder if some day his birthday January 31 might some how be remembered as Vegetarian History Day in his honor. Rynn did so much in his lifetime to make history come alive and to stimulate interest in the lives and legacies of famous vegetarians through out time. Now, he himself joins those ranks and we will never forget him.

Thanks so much, Agnes and Vegan World Radio. Today is actually Rynn's birthday - right, as VWR has pointed out.
